Baher Haroun

Senior Fellow, FIEEE, Kilby Labs, Texas Instruments Inc., USA

Baher S. Haroun, Fellow IEEE, is an elected Senior Fellow at Texas Instruments Inc. and a director of Advanced Technology Exploration at Kilby Labs, TI. Baher since 1995 at TI has led multiple R&D projects in high performance wireless systems, ADCs, DACs, mmWave/THz RF, high precision clocks/PLLs, Gbps SerDes, efficient RF digital power amplifiers and ultrasonic, optical and mmWave Radar sensing circuits and systems. From 1998-2009 he has led Worldwide design teams for Analog, mixed-signal, power management and RF CMOS integration in TI Wireless BU over 6 digital CMOS processes nodes (from 0.18um to 28nm) for billions of wireless devices in the market. From 2009 till today, Baher has helped create and direct multiple R&D teams on various technologies at TI Kilby Labs. Baher joined Texas Instruments in 1995 in the Mixed Signal Group, after being an assistant, then associate professor at Concordia University, Montreal, Canada from 1989-1995.

Baher has a Ph.D. 1990 from ECE U. of Waterloo, ON, Canada and a M.Sc. and B.Sc. EE from Ain Shams University Cairo, Egypt. Baher has over 150 issued Patents, and 50 published more than 50 IEEE papers. He has served as a session Chair, given invited talks and has been a panel speaker, a member of technical committees and a reviewer for multiple IEEE conferences including ISSCC and ESSIRC.

Smart Sensing: Mixed signal active sensing for precision and energy efficiency
Many sensing methods have been used for decades to measure fundamental parameters. There is increasing need for more precise, lower cost and more pervasive sensing, driven by autonomous vehicles, robotics, industrial automation, security and health/wellness needs. This talk will go over multiple active sensing examples to highlight methods where mixed signal monitoring around the sensor or Actuator/Sensor can enhance precision and/or energy efficiency. Examples in magnetic, ultrasonic, mmWave and optical sensing systems will be discussed.
